    Just ordered my new Incredible to replace my Motorola Droid. I have not been using a case or screen protector on my Motorola and have had zero issues carrying it in my front pocket.

    Does anyone carry their Incredible in the same fashion? Any issues?

    Thanks in advance!

    It all depends on what lifestyle you live, some play hard some just float along, myself, I play hard, so my Incredible has the full Invisishield protection, and is always in a case or rubber skin, just ordered the Innocase II Surface Combo from Seidio, that case is build like a tank.

    My wife refused to but a case on her Incredible. The other day it fell of a table on our patio and hit the hard floor face down. The entire screen is cracked but the phone still works. When she gets her replacement it will be in a case. I have the silicon case on my Incredible and it has a little lip around the screen that I think would have prevented it from breaking. Also, I prefer slight added width of the phone with the case on. Seems to fit better in my hand.

    Summary: If you don't plan to get a case, make sure you have insurance.

    My DI is naked!!!! I just cant get used to a case, I think they take away from the phone. Invisible shield is ok but will not protect in a fall. I carry insurance and if it breaks it breaks! I'll just get a new one! I have never used a case on any phone and have never broken one!

    I'd say it's fine without a case, it's pretty sturdy. I just use a screen cover just incase because I don't want a scratch on this beautiful thing.

    I'm in a monogamous relationship, so I do not use protection. Why isn't this a poll?

    I've never used protection - just don't like the look/feel of most cases. I do have the insurance plan though. I've been using smart phones for years, and have never had a problem (aside from manufacturing defects).

    My unprotected DI just dropped to a ceramic floor from about 4.5 feet this morning. I expected the worst. When I picked it up, there was no physical damage; everything appears to be working fine.

    Even with insurance you still get the pleasure of paying $90 for the replacement...

    I went with the body glove case (which i highly reccommend) but chose against an screen protector because of the apparent make of the front screen's glass. I read that it was resistant to scratches, and I've had the thing for a month now and there's not a single slight scratch on the thing.

    I had one of those scratch covers that were proven to be knife resistant and all that jazz on my old phone and I noticed that over the course of a year, the cover picked up my finger's oils and turned slightly brown-tinted.

    Just go naked and be careful.

    I just threw on the Steiheil crystal screen protector and it is pretty nice. Seems to cut down on prints a little bit and looks good. Still up ion the air over a case... I have a silicone case but dont like it, takes away from the look of the phone!

    If and when I choose to use protection, I always go with the most natural feeling one I can find....

    My Incredible is nude, I put cases and clear films on other devices I've owned and hated it but used them just in case. Well I've never dropped any of them so that means I take good care of my things. IF there is a nice case out there that I find useful however I would buy it.

    A friend of mine has one of those Otter boxes for his iPhone, sure it protects it but DANG how does he fit his phone in his pocket? Except he really does need it, he's such a goof. Cases take away the the sleek, beautiful design, and the Incredible has a much better design to look at than others.
